LSE:POG Swing Trade

– I see enough confluences below to justify a short swing trade* for LSE:POG
– Enter beneath the low of today’s Doji candle, with stop above
– Initial target could be the recent swing lows, but as this is a potential ‘linear phase’ swing trade the system suggests to let half the profits run (if all goes well…)
– If we close above the Doji the order can be reviewed to reset the levels, or cancelled (depending on how it develops)
* Swing Trade rules have been taken from Marc Rivalland on Swing Trading where he combines Dow theory with his modified Gann Swing chart.

GBPAUD – Swing Trade

– This swing trade will (hopefully) be short and sweet, although quite risky as we’re trading within a range
– The main reason for the trade is the bearish engulfing pattern and swing trade pattern – so I’ll be targeting the 1.46 area to take a quick profit
– To increase the reward/risk ratio I’ll set up a sell-limit order around the 38.2% fibs level (from the daily range)
– I risk not getting filled at all, but if I entered beneath the low of the candle it would only be a 1:1 which I’ve never been comfortable with anyway
– Although all charts agree to being bearish they leave a lot of room for any price gains before changing to a more bullish view – if in doubt, go without!

LSE:BLT – Swing Trade

Using a filter I made in ShareScope it scanned LSE:BHP for a short trade today (BHP Billiton)
– Rules have been taken from Marc Rivalland on Swing Trading where he combines Dow theory with his modified Gann Swing chart.
– Here we are looking for what he calls a ‘Linear Phase’ trade where a downtrend has been confirmed by breaking a swing low (Dow Theory) and an order is placed below the last bar’s low after a pull-back (modified Gann Swing Chart)
– If the trade doesn’t trigger today but instead creates a new ‘up day’  then we re-set the order to catch the drop, until a key swing high is taken out, which would then confirm an uptrend and invalidates the trade.
– My target will be open but I can consider the gap around 1890, the swing low around 1800 or even 1711 – I’ll see how price develops and trail a stop above daily highs
